Hi, Elwyn!

Not Bormann, but Josef Brunner. :)

Reichswehr (Early Wehrmacht) general in post 5210 - Eugen Hahn.

Best wishes

One more picture from ebay.
It looks a visit of military attaches before 1938.
I think the austrian officer at the far left is the later Wehrmacht Gen.Lt. Karl MOYSES. But who is the general on german uniform?
Cheers.

if this is indeed Karl Moyses [25.06.1934 austrian Oberst, 01.01.1938 austrian Generalmajor], then he was the host as deputy commander of the Theresianische Militärakademie (01.04.1937 - 13.03.1938) - and then the german officer is Char. Generalleutnant Wolfgang Muff [since 01.04.1934 Militärattaché in Wien].

The middle picture on #5236 is Karl STRECKER with Rudolf HESS in 1940.

Ruslan, you have made me to have second thoughts. I had seen several pictures of Rudolf HESS visiting the western front with STRECKER and Otto HARTMANN; so my first reaction was to identify the general on #5236 with STRECKER. After your last remark I went back to those pictures and I´ve noticed several discrepancies. The peaked cap wore by STRECKER in those pictures is different than the one on Fakatoma´s post. As well, this unidentified general is wearing the spange to the klass I EK whereas STRECKER is not on the other pictures. Besides, his features are not that clear, therefore.....he might be BRIESEN even though I would not put all my money on that bet.
Thanks for your remarks anyway.

Esteban,

Cases not in medals or hats. Strecker has a snub nose, here we have the complete opposite - hooked nose.

Alex,

Von Briesen based in Normandy before "Seelöwe".

Although I don't yet 100% sure in v. Briesen.

Best wishes
Ruslan
